How to make your writing in color

It's kind of like putting in a picture, it's a code that web browsers see.

You surround the text with a "begin-color" code, and an "end-color" code.

begin color code is this:
    <FONT COLOR="#0033ff">
(that one makes blue writing)
end color code is this:
    </FONT>


Notice that the characters enclosing the code are different from the picture codes:
it's "< >" instead of "[ ]"

There's actually a website that shows the codes for lots of colors, that's at
http://home.i1.net/~dwolfe/hexmixer/
Use the *first* code in each pair on those pages (not the codes in parentheses) and remember the preceeding # sign and quotes around the code.


For the adventurous: explanation for the color codes
The code consists of 3 parts, one for each of the color components: red, green, blue.

Each color can have a value of 0 through 255. But those values are expressed in 'hexadecimal' number format.
That means each digit in the code can be
0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e, or f.

the code "#0033ff" means:
    red=00, green=33, blue=ff (255).
That gives a nice blue color.

If you made that "#ff00ff", it would be:
    red=ff (255), green=00, blue=ff (255)
which makes a kind of bright fuschia.

As someone discovered a while ago, you can combine this with the <font size=n> command to make big or small colored text, as in:
<font size=5 color="#99ff00">Big Lyme green</font>
which makes: Big Lyme green

You just click on the color you want and it gives you the code. [Smile]
